The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. FHCAM is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.

We went early on a Thursday morning, not very crowded. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the building. Easy flat walking. Nominal fee for seniors. Nice gift shop. There are two hangars full of many types of aircraft from WW2, a V2 rocket, a space ship, videos to watch, tanks. My favorite was the flying "Jenny" a yellow bi-plane... More

If you know about our history you will love it. If you do not you REALLY should go. We had been before, but decided to take a young friend. We went early to avoid crowds and had the experience of a lifetime. Our young friend had wanted to meet a World War II vet and knew that with each passing... More

Awesome tour. Real planes with real stories with real markings. Excellent photo ops. Takes about 60-90 minutes to walk through and enjoy all the exhibits. It should take 2-3 hours to walk the hangers and absorb yourself in all the placards and visual displays. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I was in Everett this week visiting friends and made my first visit to the Heritage Collection - An Amazing Collection of Historic Aircraft! This is one of the very few collections I have visited that has such great examples of the flying machines of WWII. Just impressive from the P-51D Mustang to the German FW190 and V2 rocket to...

Thank you for providing the public an opportunity to see these birds of history. My love of history and aircraft was enhanced with this visit. I also appreciated the gift shop selling model kits of the aircraft in the collection.

This is a great collection of WW2 war planes, 2 tanks and a flack gun. Talk about the planes that you won't see anywhere else in the world. All of the planes shown are flight worthy, and will be flown this coming spring, the only 2 planes that won't fly are the FW190 Dora 13 and the Japanese Army "Zero"... More

Flying Heritage collection center not only show the collection of the aircraft, it also document the information to educated people. Beside just showing the aircraft and tank, they also pay attention to rebuild the machine to let them fly and move again! They do such a good job to manager them. And they keep lots of precious moments in both... More

Not a huge collection by any means, and virtually everything they have actually flies. Was there on a day when they were doing annuals, so lots of cowlings off the planes. Was impressed by the scope of the collection and the ground vehicles that go with it all. Not often you get to see a current front line Russian Fighter... More

This is an excellent collection. The museum is so well put together, clean and easy to navigate. It was a great activity for a rainy morning. There are displays with historical information that help pull the experience together.
